Here are the lineups for today:

RED SOX (14-14-1)
Scutaro SS
Pedroia 2B
Drew RF
Beltre 3B
Ortiz DH
Lowell 1B
Cameron CF
Varitek C
Hall LF

Pitching: RHP John Lackey followed by Manny Delcarmen.

TWINS (15-12)
Span CF
Hudson 2B
Kubel RF
Cuddyer 1B
Thome DH
Young LF

Butera C

Pitching: RHP Nick Blackburn followed by RHP Pat Neshek, RHP Jesse Crain and RHP Matt Guerrier.

Game time: 1:05 p.m.

TV/Radio: ESPN

Notes:This will be the final tune-up for Lackey before he faces the Yankees on Wednesday. … Delcarmen, whose velocity has been down all spring, could stand to look better today. … The Sox have already wrapped up the vaunted Mayor’s Cup, leading the spring series with the Twins 4-2.

Back with more later on.

UPDATE, 8:45 a.m.: Yes, Jacoby Ellsbury is out of the lineup again. Not sure why, but he is taking BP in the cage right now. So whatever it is can’t be too bad.
